The Vault, a new spot from the people behind Trestle in the basement of the Bank of America building in FiDi, feels like it’s part of a private club, one where briefcases outnumber people when it’s busy. The food comes in small portions that are good for when you don’t want dinner or drinks to drag on longer than your weekly conference call about phone etiquette. We like the short rib with Cowgirl Creamery cheese foam, but if you’re here with someone you know pretty well, order a few more cocktails before you go for the chicken nuggets and compare childhood stories about hitting McDonald’s after soccer practice.
